‘Sound and Climate Camp‘, from Lucie Páchová, consists of a youth residency with a goal of inspiring young people living in northwestern Czechia to address local social-environmental challenges through creative work with sound and music.
The six day long Sound & Climate Camp gathered 12 young participants from Bílina, Litvínov and Duchcov- small towns situated around the Bílina coal mine. The program offered two principal workshops (podcast production and rap/ electronic music), various sound-oriented activities, games, jam sessions, song-writing workshops, community fires, dance and sports as well as open discussions with guests and locals on the topics of local environmental challenges, active citizenship and community involvement.
The goal of the program was to inspire the young people living in the north-western Czechia to address the local social-environmental challenges through creative work with sound and music. Participants of Sound & Climate camp get involved into the creative sound-based activities leading to a dialog about their surrounding environment, everyday life and diverse relationship networks. The camp sought to provide participants with the creative tools and guidance to shape their ideas into the results that can be shared with their wider community.

Graduating from Janaček Academy of Music and Performing Arts Multimedia Composition Department, she has focused on new media theater performances, experimenting with projections, dance and multi-channel sound installations.
